About BUFL's Gift of Safety Initiative
Each program year (August 1st - July 31st) BUFL will provide car seats to families in need across the United States, through the Gift of Safety initiative. Each of 50 selected agencies will be awarded 76 car seats (52 Evenflo Titan 65 convertibles and 24 Evenflo no-back boosters) free of charge (shipping and handling included) to distribute along with child passenger safety education to families in their local communities.
Nonprofit organizations, as determined under section 501(c)(3) or 509(a) of the Internal Revenue Code, and public service agencies (e.g., fire/police departments, local health departments, public schools, etc.) are eligible to apply.
Agencies must have at least one certified Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) on staff. This individual must be available to provide education and assistance to each family receiving a car seat to ensure that it is installed and used correctly.
Agencies must serve at-risk populations, and be able to identify need in their own communities.
Car seats may be distributed at the agency's discretion--although the focus should be on at-risk populations. Each agency may assess and determine local need.
Car seats and education must be provided by a certified Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) who can ensure that seats are installed and used correctly.
Each recipient of a car seat must complete and sign a Car Seat Pact, which BUFL will provide. This brief survey will provide some basic demographic data on the program's participants. Although Car Seat Pacts do not need to be returned to BUFL, each agency is expected to provide a roll up report of these findings to BUFL on a quarterly basis (see Deliverables, below).

Car seats provided by Buckle Up for Life must be given away to selected families for FREE. Seats may not be sold.
All car seats must be given away by July 31, 2021.
Selected agencies must participate in a required one-hour Welcome Webinar, sign a BUFL Curriculum and Brand Usage Agreement, and provide minimal reporting to BUFL on a quarterly basis (see Next Steps).
Each agency must distribute 76 car seats, for free, to local families in need, by July 31, 2021.
Each agency must provide child passenger safety education with each car seat distributed.
